Popular term-limited Houston City Council member Brenda Stardig, a staunch supporter of each and every HPOU issue that cropped up on her watch, is a Republican candidate in the March 3 primary to succeed Harris County Precinct 3 Commissioner Steve Radack.
The HPOU PAC has endorsed Stardig for this powerful county office and is urging Union members to cast a vote for Stardig, who served her limit of terms as the councilwoman representing Council District A. Her successor, Amy Peck, was heartily endorsed by HPOU PAC and was recently sworn in.
Stardig’s District A spanned portions of both county commissioner Precincts 3 and 4. She seeks to succeed Radack, who was first elected in 1988 and chose to retire after his current term.
Stardig has been a staunch advocate for the residents of Precinct 3 for many years and is ready to serve as the next commissioner.
“This is something I am truly passionate about,” Stardig said. “I thought very carefully about whether or not to run for this position and ultimately determined that there is too much at stake for me not to run.
“I care very deeply about this community and will put in the time and work to make sure that everyone is taken care of.”
Stardig’s top priorities are infrastructure and public safety. As a council member she has advocated for and delivered many flood mitigation projects that protected her community from further flooding. She has served as the chair of the Public Safety & Homeland Security Committee for the City of Houston since 2016.
As the chair, she has worked on various issues and worked with community leaders to change ordinances related to boarding homes, ensuring that people living in and around these homes are protected.
Council Member Stardig also changed the habitability ordinances to make it easier to remove slum apartments. She was personally involved in either shutting down or demolishing nine unsafe apartment complexes.
The current commissioner for Precinct 3 has been in office for 31 years. “I want to thank Commissioner Radack for the time he put into this job,” said Stardig. “It is time for a new perspective in this precinct.
“Addicks Reservoir and Cypress Creek are both in Precinct 3 and can impact the entire county. We must take active steps now to make sure that both are functioning properly. I know how to do this and will continue to be dedicated towards fixing these concerns.”
